The Support Report with b-present – How Support Changes Lives

Abby Westerman | July 24, 2020

Our new podcast, The Support Report with b-present, is hosted by our very own Justin Peters. Each month we share real stories from young adults and dive deep into how support changed their lives. We explore their challenges, triumphs, and everything in between. We want the Support Report  to inspire, entertain, and empower you to create your own stories of support and presence for others within your community.

The Need

Now more than ever, people are experiencing the need to connect and realizing how much it hurts when they are not. They need to know that they are not alone in their struggles and that there is someone beside them to lean on, laugh with, and learn from. However, providing support is not always easy, and the moments when someone needs us most may also be the moments we have to dig the deepest to get through. But know this…

Those moments matter. 


When a young adult faces a life-altering experience, their health becomes dependent on the presence of others. Whether it is a diagnosis, loss of a loved one, mental struggles, or grief, the support of a loved one is vital. Having supportive people in our lives helps us through tough moments so we can enjoy moments of relief, joy, and hope. 

Let’s talk about it

The Support Report exists to help you develop empathy and compassion that leads to improved connections. By self-reflecting and applying what you learn we hope to help you become better supporters for the future. And we want to inspire you to create change in your own lives and communities by volunteering your time and talent, advising or starting organizations, and creating products or services that solve problems you have experienced or have the means to solve. While you may not be able to change the past, you can learn from others’ experiences and find new ways to be present with purpose and change the future for those that need you most.
